Wizard icon.jpg

The Wizard, naturally, is the strongest spellcasting hero but lacking all but the simplest gear he is easily slaughtered in melee. He, too, is hampered early on by the puny selection of spells available at the start. Because of that, the easiest way to start out as a Wizard is to pursue Necromancy and use undead to fight for him. Because of the high gem cost of spells and the fact that undead and summoned demons cost gems more than gold for upkeep, a Wizard as primary hero can lead to enormous gem expenses, making it necessary to monitor their outlay carefully. On the other hand, gold expense is cut heavily compared to the other heroes without the Commander's large army or the Warrior's and Scout's equipment repair needs.

Wizard's unique starting attributes:

  • Hit points: 14
  • Attack: 2
  • Counterattack: 3
  • Resistance: 4

Wizards can use the following types of items:

  • Common
  • Wand.

Wizards who begin with Wand Mastery 1 begin with a Simple Wand; otherwise he begins with a Toga. He also begins with four random 1st circle spells.

Wizards can learn wizard perks up to Mastery Level 3.

The primary stats of a level 0 Wizard are: 0 Health; 1 Magic; 0 Command.

The primary stats of a level 10 wizard are: 2 Health; 6 Magic; 2 Command.

Notes:[edit | edit source]

Despite the class abilities, a single-class Archmage with five points in both Necromancy and Summoning is better at Necromancy than even a Master Necromancer; together, the two extra points a mage can get in those skills gives +8 levels (and can be learned sooner, and grant other advantages like increased health regen to undead and stronger summons via other spells), while the Master Necromancer gets only +4 levels, and only at level 20. If Necromancy is your strategy, only become a Necromancer if you also want the gem cost reduction and scout capabilities.
